What explanation is there for this Grateful Dead acoustic performance being archived as Phil and Friends? Something about the way the show was billed ?

The show was a benefit for the music programs of Berkeley schools billed as "Phil and Friends"

Personel was Lesh, Garcia, Weir and Welnick.

Sure sounds like the Grateful Dead to me...

In the absence of Bill Kreutzmann it isn't the Grateful Dead.

(see past 'Core Four' discussions where I have droned on at length on this topic)

But without Phil Lesh it is the Grateful Dead?

Makes absolutely no sense...

I agree. It made no sense to call it the Grateful Dead without Phil (just as it wasn't the Grateful Dead without Bob and never could be without Jerry).
